I had a great experience here - the staff was nice the vibe was nice, it was relatively clean with lots of hammocks and a good common area. The food is super cheap and tasty with giant portions. If you are a backpacker, this is a good home base for exploring the island. They offer tours and rentals as well....

This hostel is really worth its price. For about 5 dollars you'll be in a dorm room (14 people). There are several showers and toilets outside the dorm. They've got 2 dorms. One is nearer to the Hostelrestaurant (might be a little bit noisy in the evening) and the other one is behind the first one but doesn't have good...

The hostel is located in Moyogalpa and not too far from the port which is nice for both arrivals or early departures. I stayed in both the dorm and the hammock. The dorms are big but still pleasant at only 5.50$ you can't complain. The hammocks are decent however out of the 7 or so hammocks I would only say...

As the title suggests, I really liked this hostel. Stayed three nights with my sister in a private with two beds. Cheap, comfortable, and super friendly staff. The restaurant is also really good and everything is super affordable. The staff told us all about discovering the island, and their motorbike rental is the cheapest of the Island. Cool vibe with...

With the hospedaje central not being on Booking.com or Hostelworld, they can afford to offer great prices for the night! There's always a lot going on but in a chilled athmosphere and the common area is very spacious and comfortable. We would come back any time!

My friend and I came across this hostel by accident. It was a really nice accident. Very affordable rooms and wonderful staff. Arranged scooter rentals and hikes for us, as well as directions to anything we thought to ask about. The food here was also delicious. Rehabilitating a deer population on this beautiful and interesting island.

This was my second time visiting Ometepe and I wanted to try this part of the island. Great prices! I stayed in a dorm room for $5.50/night. Hammocks were only $3.50 but near the bar so I preferred a bit more privacy with the dorm option. The dorm was quiet even though my room had 16 beds. (The other room...

Hospedaje Central definitely has a backpacker vibe. The compound is quite large with both ample private rooms & dorms. Everything, & I mean everything, is brightly painted. Looking at all the murals you can see numerous guests have added their artwork to the walls over the years. The room we stayed in while we explored Ometepe had a palm tree...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a Backpacker-friendly hostel with Bar and Restaurant. Our goal is to provide a great service and friendly environment to everyone who enters Hospedaje Central. To accomplish that::: We have hand-crafted our restaurant's menu, offering a broad range of delicious dishes - from local cuisine to global classics; you're bound to find something you enjoy. (People love our Batidos[smoothies] too):: Our Bar is stocked with the best local liquors and a variety of world favorites as well. If you're not feeling the high-end alcohol, we also have a nice selection of "Cheap and Dirty" brews that won't be too heavy on your wallet. There are also delicious mixed drinks available for those who want to try out the local fruit concoctions. And of course, great music. Whichever type of fun you want, we can help you get there.:: If you aren't into eating, or drinking, we enjoy helping our guests plan their adventures. We have great contacts around the island to help you get what you want. Whether its traveling and making new reservations on Maderas, organizing transport, renting motorcycles or horses, simply giving directions to great beach locations or helping you Trek-Up-The-Ultimate-Volcano: Conception - We can take care of it for you.:: And most of all, if you're just into relaxing, we built an entire hostel around that concept. We have great sitting areas throughout the area, a nice garden under the sun, a reading friendly courtyard, lots of hammocks to swing in, private rooms for secluded time, and dorm rooms for the fun and friendly types. We filled the walls with paintings and culture for you to look at when you don't have a good book, and we're building a small library for you to find that good book afterwards. Overall, its a great place to hang out, people tell us all the time, and we're happy to provide this atmosphere for those who seek it.:: And for those who live on the cloud, we also have THE INTERNET. (free wifi included) We hope this helps you. Enjoy Nicaragua!-Team Hospedaje Central(El Indio Viejo) P.S. If you're not staying with us, at least stop by and say Hello, we enjoy conversation, it's a good way to learn something new! ... more   less
